Forgotten wrestlers that should have got more?



I thought this could be a pretty good topic in regards to wrestlers who didn't really have a huge career in the WWE but probably should have done. The first that comes to mind for me in recent times is Tyler Reks. I seriously thought the dude had a great look and was solid in the ring. I would put him as more of a heel than anything as with his look and a bit of aggression he could have come across as a real threat to the faces however he was never give the push he deserved and he left the WWE.



I know he was fairly early on his career but I do truly feel that he could have done a lot more and would have progressed really well. However what talents do you feel fit this mould also and what do you think?

I thought this thread would be nice to give these forgotten talents a bit of credit that they deserve.



Don't worry Heff, we can still have a nice Thanksgiving. I bought us a nice big vegetarian turkey. It'll be delicious!

Sean O'Haire. Had a lot of star quality and the "Devil's Advocate" gimmick stood out a mile and he played it brilliantly. For some reason, WWE dropped the ball on this dude.



Sign him up!

Dude Frightened me as a kid as Mordecai, obviously he didn't do much as Mordecai, and had more longetivity as Kevin Thorn lol but I think this character had a more epic feel to it.



People may call him a vanilla midget, but I remember him cutting an epic promo on Velocity while bloody where he came across as a star to me. Hear he's doing insane shit in Lucha Underground so good on him.



And I'll always bring up Awesome in these threads... Always.

He got Dawn Marie to flash the audience (though Kay-fable) deserves a world title run for that one.

Derrick Bateman I guess

Paul London is another, really liked him. Shame his most memorable moment is getting decapitated by Snitsky at the 05 rumble

Snitsky is another one
